We may combine your information, including Usage Data, with information from third parties in order to enhance our ability to communicate with you and provide you opportunities to purchase products or services that we believe may be of interest to you.   In addition, from time to time, we may establish relationships with other people or entities whom we believe to be trustworthy and whom we have asked to confirm that their privacy practices are consistent with ours. In this context, we may disclose to third parties your Usage Data and other personal information that you provide to us, so long as combined and used in aggregate form and in a manner that does not identify you. 


Cookies are small files saved to your computer. Cookies can be used for a number of important purposes. For example they allow us to distinguish you from other users on our website which help us to provide you with a great online experience as well as improve our website. Cookies allow us to gauge where our visitors come from (i.e. Google), recognize and count the number of visits to our site, as well as how visitors move around the site. Cookies help us to improve not only the way our website works, but to ensure you find what you’re looking for easily as well. 

The Golden State Co uses persistent cookies, either directly or indirectly through one of our third party providers. We also use other tracking technology such as pixel tags or web beacons. These Technologies assist us with your requests, and make your browsing experience easier (i.e. by remembering which language you prefer) this way you enjoy a seamless experience.  Persistent cookies assist us with understanding how you use our website. It also allows us to target you with specifically tailored advertising based on your visit(s) along with carry out business analytics, other statistic activities and traffic.

Depending on your browser’s settings, your computer may alert you when a cookie is being placed on your computer.

If you do decided to turn off your cookies you may not have access to some of the features that make your experience easier and some services may not function properly.

The collection and means of collecting information through any currently existing or future App are previously discussed in this policy. The sharing of any information is also previously discussed in this policy.

In addition, by using the App you may be asked for permission to access data on your mobile device, such as photos. We will only access this data with your consent. Please note that some functions of the App are only available if you allow access to requested content.

You are able to opt-out of certain functions of the App by changing the settings on your mobile device. For specific instructions, please refer to the instructions provided for your mobile device.

Security and Credit Card Safety

Protecting the safety of your credit card information is important to us. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect the security of your credit card information as it is transmitted to us. SSL is a highly sophisticated method of scrambling data as it travels from your computer to our Sites' servers.

To make sure you are accessing our secure server before you submit personal financial information, look at the lower left-hand corner of your Web browser. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending upon your browser), then SSL is active. To double-check for security, look at the URL or “Address” line of your Web browser. If you have accessed a secure server, the first characters of the address in that line should change from "http" to "https".

We use industry-standard security techniques on the Sites to help protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information collected from you on the Sites. When you access your account information or transmit personally identifiable data to the Sites, that information is stored on servers that the Sites has attempted to secure from unauthorized access or intrusion. That said, no data transmission over the Internet or other network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect information transmitted on or through the Sites, we cannot and do not guarantee the security of any information you transmit on or through the Sites, and you do so at your own risk.

We urge our customers to be cautious with personal and account information.
If you think that you may have disclosed your personal or account information in error, or that you have been a victim of fraudulent account activity, please contact your bank and/or credit card company immediately. You may also wish to contact a credit reporting agency.

Service Providers

From time to time, we may contract with other businesses whom we believe to be trustworthy and who have confirmed that their privacy practices are consistent with ours to perform services for or on behalf of The Golden State Co (“Service Providers”). For example, we may contract with Service Providers to provide certain services, such as hosting and maintenance, data storage and management, and marketing and promotions. Some of our Service Providers may use their own cookies or other tracking technology in connection with the services they perform on our behalf. We only provide our Service Providers with the information necessary for them to perform these services on our behalf. Each Service Provider must agree to use reasonable security procedures and practices, appropriate to the nature of the information involved, in order to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Service Providers are prohibited from using personal information other than as specified by The Golden State Co.

Advertising & Do Not Track

We may allow third-party companies to serve ads or collect certain information about you when you visit the Sites. These companies may use browsing information (e.g., click stream information, Web browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to the Sites and other web sites in order to provide advertisements about products and services likely to be of interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or other technology to collect this information.

Our systems do not recognize Do Not Track (DNT) signals from browsers. DNT is a privacy preference that users can set in some web browsers, allowing users to opt out of tracking by websites and online services. However, many third party services that collect this type of information permit you to opt out through a separate system. To learn more about this behavioral advertising practice or to opt-out of this type of advertising from participating third parties providers, you can visit . In addition, please see the Your Information Choices section to learn how to manage what marketing or other information you receive directly from us.

If The Golden State Co is merged, acquired, or sold, or in the event of a transfer of some or all of our assets, we may disclose or transfer personal information and Usage Data in connection with such transaction. You will have the opportunity to opt out of any such transfer if, in our discretion, the new entity plans to handle your information in a way that differs materially from this Privacy Policy.

We do not exercise control over third-party web sites. You access such third-party web sites or content at your own risk. You should always read the privacy policy of a third-party web site before providing any information to the web site.
